  Wilbert Hetterscheid Lecture
From: Tony Avent tony at plantdelights.com> on 2006.06.18 at 19:42:17(14355)
Dear Aroiders:

For those that haven't heard, Wilbert Hetterscheid, aka Lord P, has
agreed to present a slide lecture at Plant Delights Nursery in North
Carolina this summer on Saturday August 19, 2006. We have tried for over
three years to get Wilbert to agree to come, so this is truly a blessed
event. Wilbert will be lecturing from 10am-noon and the title is
“Everything you Want to Know about Amorphophallus, but Couldn't Ask Your
Parents.” Seating is limited to the first 30 people, so the session will
be very interactive. Registration is $40 each, which hopefully will help
us cover the airfare. We will open the nursery for attendees and promise
that you will find a nice assortment of amorphophallus for sale that are
not available in the main catalog. While you are here, you also can tour
the 5-acre display gardens as well as our amorphophallus collection
which currently contains 72 named species. If you like arisaemas, they I
should mention that arisaema guru Pascal Bruggeman will also be here.
Pascal will not be making a presentation, but this will be a great
chance to meet Pascal in person and chat about arisaemas. The same is
true for another of the country’s great Aroid experts, Alan Galloway,
who will also be on-hand for Wilbert’s presentation. If you have
questions or would like to sign up, please email office@plantdelights.com
